These are only suggestions! Have fun with spices and veggies you like. Leftover pork, chicken, or shrimp (just thaw precooked shrimp and toss in) are favorites at our house too. Fresh is best, really, but you can use frozen ethnic vegetable blends. I just add those to my boiling pasta and then mix my sauce ingredients together, toss sauce over veggies and pasta after draining. Healthy, fast, you'll love it.
